Padres' Josh Naylor: Could spend time at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is the "most obvious DH candidate" if a universal designated hitter is instituted for the 2020 season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

Under MLB's current proposal, teams in both leagues would use a designated hitter during an abbreviated 2020 season. Naylor makes sense to fill the role regularly for San Diego given his raw power and subpar defense. Still, Lin notes that the Padres could cycle through a number of players to DH in order to preserve energy and health, so Naylor is far from guaranteed an everyday role.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor (neck) is back in the lineup Friday against Texas.

Naylor missed a few days after feeling tightness in his neck, but he's been cleared to both bat and play left field. The 22-year-old has gone 2-for-7 with a walk this spring as he looks to carve out a role in a crowded outfield.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Tight neck muscle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor has sat out the last four days after feeling tightness in his neck after a throw, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Naylor had hoped to return to action Wednesday but instead was scratched from the lineup after reporting stiffness. "He wanted to go. We thought it was best (to) give it another day or two," said manager Jayce Tingler. Naylor is fighting for an Opening Day roster slot but isn't projected to start in either outfield corner.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Healthy but struggling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor has recovered from a lower-leg issue that bothered him early in November but is struggling in the Dominican Winter League.

Naylor hurt his right calf and shin on a fielding play back in late October and missed over a week. He's healthy now but has hit just .250/.305/.303 over 22 games.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Dealing with lower-leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor hasn't played in the Dominican winter league in over a week due to a right calf and shin strain, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Naylor's leg got caught under him on a fielding play in late October. He hasn't been shut down and hopes to return to action at some point this winter, so it sounds as if the issue isn't currently expected to carry over into spring training.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

After starting in the first two games of the series and going hitless with four strikeouts in seven at-bats, Naylor will cede his spot in the corner outfield to Hunter Renfroe. The two will likely continue to split time in the final week of the season with neither player having performed well enough at the plate lately to justify a full run of playing time.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is not in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

He will sit for the second time in the last three games. Now that Hunter Renfroe is fully healthy, Naylor will likely split time with him in right field over the rest of the season. Naylor is hitting .250/.365/.386 with one home run in 44 at-bats this month.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Naylor delivered his eighth homer of the season in Monday's series opener, but he'll retreat to the bench Tuesday. Hunter Renfroe draws the start in right field and will hit fifth.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to Colorado.

Naylor connected on a 419-foot shot to center field in the ninth inning to plate the Padres' final two runs of the game. The long ball snapped a 23-game spell in which Naylor did not go yard. The 22-year-old is slashing .253/.321/.422 with eight homers and 31 RBI in 249 plate appearances this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs.

He will miss his second game in a row. Naylor is hitting .227 with zero home runs, five strikeouts and four walks in nine games this month. Wil Myers starts in right field while hitting cleanup.

Padres' Josh Naylor: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres' Josh Naylor: Catches breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Arizona.

Naylor has reached base safely in seven of his last eight contests, but he'll head to the bench for the second game of the series. Nick Martini is set to man left field and bat second.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor isn't starting Friday's game against the Giants.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Boston.

Naylor has an .869 OPS through 21 games in August, but he'll take a seat Sunday with southpaw Brian Johnson on the mound for the Red Sox. Francisco Mejia will start in left field while Austin Hedges works behind the plate in the series finale.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox.

Naylor rarely starts against left-handed pitchers, so it should come as little surprise that he was held out Friday with southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez on the bump for the Red Sox. Wil Myers will occupy Naylor's regular spot in left field.

Padres' Josh Naylor: Blasts seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday against the Reds.

Naylor took Sonny Gray deep in the sixth inning to record his seventh home run of the season. He has taken over the majority of playing time in left field over Wil Myers, starting each of the team's last five games. Naylor has hit well in that span, smacking three extra-base hits, driving in three and scoring three runs. He's seen his slash line improve to .253/.322/.442 across 171 plate appearances this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Naylor will make his first career start against a left-handed pitcher Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Naylor will hit second and play left field. The 22-year-old has collected four hits in his last seven at-bats and is slashing .308/.400/.641 with a 1.041 OPS through 15 games -- including 10 starts -- in August. He has a .241 batting average in 29 at-bats against southpaws this season.

The 22-year-old has mostly featured off the bench this season, hitting .242/.296/.403 with five homers, 22 RBI and 14 runs scored in 124 at-bats.
